Pregnant Women Now being Advised To Take Vaccine

The Malta College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists have advised pregnant women to start taking the COVID-19 vaccine due to observations of the virus’ complications seen in pregnant women.

The College recommended that pregnant women consider taking a Pfizer vaccine after their 12th week of pregnancy, following a consultation on the matter with their doctors. Doctors are advising that only women at high risk of exposure or with high-risk medical conditions are to be offered vaccination.

Concerns have been voiced in the past regarding taking the vaccine whilst pregnant due to worries over the jab’s unknown effects on fertility and pregnancy.

"It has been shown that the COVID-19 vaccine can be taken in pregnancy and breastfeeding. If the woman is trying to get pregnant she can still take the vaccine and there is also no evidence that the COVID-19 vaccine affects fertility," the Malta College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists reassured.
